I found a problem....
My network adapters are a problem
they causes interference
when I disable them sound is normal.
But new network adapter drivers did not help

I found the answer thanks to another blog post--it's the Conexant driver that is the problem. Go to your Control Panel, open up Programs and Features, and Uninstall the Conexant driver. Reboot your laptop, and the Microsoft sound driver will load instead. Problem fixed! Yay

I've been having the same problem with my Satellite. How does the Microsoft sound driver load? does it do it automatically. I've go a Satellite L655-5083, what is your version. It's running Windows 7 with the Intel Pentium.

I updated the antheros Network adapter driver. It didnt work.
I updated the Realtek wireless Lan driver. It didnt work.
Finally, I disabled antheros Network adapter.
And it worked!
Toshiba still didnt provide solution for this problem.

and it fixes the problem! Much happier!!

Hello. Not sure if this is the same issue, but I recently discovered I was having a real problem with my new laptop. Just got it one week ago. I like it, except that the audio recorder doesn't work. I use goldwave, an audio editor/processor/recorder, and have for years, on laptops as far back as the 90s but with this laptop, it says it can't record audio. I'm at a loss, because I've never had this problem. At first, I was able to record from the microphone, but when I told it to record what was playing on the computer, it wouldn't let me, it said it wasn't able to.... Is there something I have to download?
Any help VERY appreciated, guys!!!

I just want to say... you rock!
I couldn't hear to music or videos without that random-annoying sound. I was about to contact consumer-support to have it fixed before my two-year guarantee expires, but thanks to the solution you've provided in this thread now it's working fine.
I reinstalled the audio drivers several times and it didn't solved the problem. I couldn't figure out that the problem was caused by the wireless-lan atheros driver. I installed the atheros driver provided by Toshiba: http://aps2.toshiba-tro.de/wlan/?page=downloads and now it works perfectly.
Thank you very much

i have a satellite L 650 and all the sound settings are on high but i can barely hear a friend has the same computer and i can hear her's from across the room.
what is the difference between conexant and de/wlan? what do they do?
also it says it the manual if you push Fn and Z at the same time and a grey bar shows up on top you have a backlight for your keyboard and I do but no BACKLIGHT. WHERE is the setting?
i have windows 7 and IE10 having lots of problems as you can see the text changes automatically without me doing it.
thinking of doing a system recovery does anyone know if that deletes windows?
thank you anyone who can help me!

I have the same problem, but I only needed to disable atheros ethernet driver in order to make the audio work fine, and because i never use the ethernet connection, it's an ok solution to me
